You're also in the running, at least as long as you keep posting pics of yourself wearing Formosa suits.

Huh? I do not recall doing much in 2015 besides having picnic attacks.

Here are all the sport coats I bought. You'll notice that my posture/musculature causes the same basic issues in all of them. I bought these all at outlet stores and didn't spend much money on any, since I'm just trying to dial in a fit/cut that works for me. Are there any worth keeping, salvageable with a tailor, or should I return them all? Do any have measurements that I should record for future purchases? Any recommendations for my body type?

 

Thanks for anybody who takes the time to review.

I'd be worried about that collar gap in the first picture.

Thinking about getting this shirt

http://www.spierandmackay.com/product_information/3710_red__blue_aberdeen_check

Not sure what color pants I could pair it with? My new job is more casual so I can wear chinos if I wanted.

I know with jeans this would pair fine. But I'm stuck, should I just stick with soiid colors?

not sure if anyone is in the same situation as me but here goes. im working in coy that requires a 'business waredrobe', meaning dress shoes, dress shirts and pants - ties are not necessary nor are suits. ive got dress pants that are in only two colors, navy and grey with equal mix of both.

i am thinking of getting a blazer/sports jacket to add on to my waredrobe which can be used for more upscale company events/functions as well as weddings, etc.

would like to know what colors are more suitable given the choices of pants color i already have (navy/grey) - i understand that a general rule is to have the jacket darker than the pants?

i have actually narrowed down my color choices to some which i prefer

1. Navy Blue - classic staple, goes very well with grey, almost a no-no with navy pants (looks like im trying to match the SC to the pants to make up a suit). timeless, will be able to use it for most functions, whether it be formal or slightly less casual.

2. Grey - another classic color, goes well with my navy pants but im not too keen on the final look, just looks slightly off compared to navy sc and grey pants.

3/4. Mustard Brown/Khaki - nice summer colors, able to match with beige/white pants, however i do not have matching pant colors and therefore would have to buy them as well incurring most costs.

any feedback would be most appreciated..icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Would look good with khaki, grey, olive, brown, and even navy chinos.

Gentlemen, could you advise on a pocket square (color wise) that would be a good match with this outfit?


Shirt is light blue. I feel like white linen isn't optimal in this case, but I couldn't figure out what to go with instead.
